By the age of 7, their back bite has likely been established and Dr. Burke is able to evaluate their tooth and jaw development and identify potential problems. We believe that taking action and examining early is the key to future success. Because Dr. Burke feels strongly about starting treatment at the right time in order to make the process as efficient as possible, if the Rookies don’t require any orthodontic treatment, Dr. Burke makes them a member of the Rookie Camp. This means that they will come every 6 months for complimentary growth exams to ensure that all is well with their growth and development. It also means they will be able to participate in all the fun events and contests that Burke and Beckstrom Ortho has going on to help motivate and inspire them.
